In the short time we've known about the works of The Aficionauto, we've become fans of the video series highlighting some of the most famous and iconic movie/television cars ever. While past episodes featured cars from 1980s movies and tv shows, the latest video shows off the 1965 Chrysler Imperial affectionately known as Black Beauty We saw the Imperial for the first time at the 2009 Comic-Con; the car actually used in the 2011 action comedy The Green Hornet.

Of the 30 cars made for the movie, host Chris Rutkowski says that Sony only preserved two, and if you're a collector of movie cars, this one is currently being sold for $165,000. Scroll down to watch as Rutkowski takes Black Beauty for a spin through Beverly Hills, CA with its assortment of exposed weapons including the hood-mounted machine guns, numerous missiles and flame thrower.

      Nice car. The Imperials ere so much better built than the Cadillacs and Lincolns of that era: "One advantage of Imperials of this vintage was their strength; their crashworthiness got them banned from most demolition derbies for being too durable. " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperial_(automobile)#Engel_design It also rode and handled better.

      It's not a "Chrysler Imperial", just an "Imperial". Imperial was its own separate brand from 1955-1975, the same as Plymouth was, Dodge is, and Jeep is.
